10/18/2004: Rachel gets all the interesting email....
but at least she "gets" the blogosphere, while most of us don't.....From her entry yesterday:
In other news, I got a very interesting email last night:I think I'm adopting this as my new motto: Bloggers are idiots! I should know!
RatherGate proved that bloggers are the best fact checkers. That is why we are writing to a few bloggers asking for help.
Yes Bush Can has collected several documents that are clearly suspect.
But we need your help to prove they are fake:
Let's spring to action before these documents needlessly tarnish the
reputation of our Commander and Chief. You know the drill: analyze the
handwriting, search for factual errors, and post your discoveries.
And keep us posted by sending email to FakeDocs@yesbushcan.com.
Thanks in advance for your help.
At first I thought, Wow! These people obvioulsy do not read this blog. Bloggers are the best fact checkers? Are these people serious? Bloggers are idiots! I should know!
The fake documents in question include Bush and Cheney's DUI's. I didn't even know Cheney had a DUI! Thanks YesBushCan!
Then I noticed the site included such one-liners as:
Bush and Cheney have excellent judgement and would never get behind the wheel while drunk.
Hold on, let me catch my breath from laughing so hard....
Ok, ok, I'm ok. Now, I know this site must be a joke.
And yes, I'm including myself in the "idiot" category.
UPDATE: Yep, it's pretty clear to me that Yes Bush Can is a gag site; just check out The Patriot Pledge if you have any doubts....
